International Students

RSU has been admitting international students for full-time studies since 1990. The most popular RSU study programmes have always been "Medicine" and "Dentistry", however, we are admitting students in several other study programmes as well. Over the years there have been significant changes in terms of the number of students we have studying with us. Since 2009 the total number of our international students has increased almost ten times and currently stands at around 2500 students.

One of the greatest assets of RSU has always been the multicultural student body. This is also a very important feature of the university that our prospective students mention as one of the reasons they choose RSU as their future university. There are currently students from 61 different countries studying at RSU. Every year we welcome students who are the very first representatives from their country at RSU.

International Graduates

The first international graduates of RSU were six "Dentistry" students who received their diplomas in June 1995. Initially RSU graduates represented several South Asian countries (Sri Lanka, Pakistan, etc.) and countries situated in the Middle East (Lebanon, Iran) but the geographical representation of our graduates has changed completely with more than 90% graduates representing the EU/EEA countries since 2010. Currently there are more than 200 international graduates receiving RSU diplomas every year.
